After Paris, we took a very long train ride to Lyon. Apparently, we were trying to travel on a national holiday so all of the fast trains were booked. We had to take the regional trains down there so a 2-3 hour ride turned into about 6 or 7. We had planned on spending the whole day in Lyon but didn't end up getting there until 8:00 at night. We stayed with a lovely girl through couchsurfing and it was a great experience! She was originally from Tibet so she made us a traditional Tibetan meal which was sort of like pot stickers. Really tasty! Then she showed us around the old part of Lyon. It is a gorgeous city and I would love to go back and spend more time there. It is apparently a huge foodie city so next time I would love to grab dinner there :) I only have iPhone photos since I didn't want to bring my big camera around. Sorry they are a bit blurry!
